RN MODES

Expand the functionality of your Race Navigator

The RN MODES allow you to adjust your Race Navigator even better to your individual needs. Whether you want to compare special stages in a Rally, collect your data and video on the fly during an endurance race or just measure your car’s performance – here you will find the right RN MODE with customized features.

Select your mode:

Trackday-Mode

Available for: RN LITE, RN ONE MKII, RN PRO
Included as a standard

All data and videos are automatically stored on the internal memory of the RN system and can be copied and analyzed after recording via RN ANALYZER or RN CONNECT.

In addition, the data and videos can also be copied to a USB stick using the export function. The recordings are automatically divided into individual laps depending on the track selected and saved. Recordings can be compared directly based on lap times. 

Depending on the setting, recording can be started and stopped manually or automatically depending on the speed.

Pit Lane Monitor Mode

Available for: RN LITE, RN ONE MKII, RN PRO
Optional upgrade

For the RN systems we offer the so-called Pit Lane Monitor function. In many race series there are fixed pit stop time windows which have to be kept by the teams. Failure to do so will result in time penalties, while exceeding them will also result in the loss of valuable time. Both can lead to the loss of positions in the ranking. The Pit Lane Monitor allows automatic timers to be set and thus always achieve the optimal pit stop time window. Unnecessary time penalties due to badly timed pit stops are a thing of the past!

The prescribed minimum time in the pit, the driving time from the pit to the pit lane exit and the permitted maximum speed in the pit lane can be set by the user.

Pit stop countdown: When crossing the entrance line of the pit lane, the countdown is automatically activated and shown on the display. The timer counts down the remaining time until the ideal time for the pit stop exit is reached. Color-coded markings at 20 seconds and at 5 seconds additionally warn the driver to prepare for the pit lane exit.

Time control: After leaving the box, the display shows the current time gain compared to the minimum time in the box (leaving the box too early) or the time loss (leaving the box too late). This allows the driver to make corrections in the pit lane to achieve the ideal pit stop time window.

Speed control: The display automatically shows the current speed of the car in the pit lane. Colored markings warn the driver if he approaches or exceeds the permitted maximum speed.

Entrance and exit line of the pit lane are automatically recognized for the respective track. Manual corrections by the user are possible.

Endurance/Taxi-Mode

Available for: RN ONE MKI, ONE MKII, RN PRO
Optional upgrade

When time is of the essence, this is the right mode to select. Whether during motorsports events with customers or during endurance races – with the Endurance/Taxi-Mode all recorded video and data are available within seconds:

Wenn When the Endurance/Taxi-Mode is selected, the Race Navigator records video and data directly to an external USB-drive that can be removed right after getting out of the cockpit. After inserting a fresh drive, the Race Navigator is immediately ready to start a new recording. This way, endurance race drivers can take their data with them after their stint, while the next driver is getting ready. This mode is also perfect for race taxi and hot lap events, where you want to give clients an USB-drive with the video of action right after getting out of the car.ten.

Optionally, the system can record video and data both to the USB-drive and to the internal storage at the same time.

Important information for using the Endurance/Taxi-Modus:

1. By default, the Endurance/Taxi mode records the lap data in the internal memory of the device and the lap video on the USB stick. To change this, go to SETTINGS -> EVENT -> TAXI/ENDURANCE -> SETTINGS. Activate one of these options:

– „Export data after recording to memory stick“ – Additionally to being recorded to the internal memory, your lap data will also be recorded to the USB stick.

– „Store video also to local drive“ – Additionally to being recorded to the USB stick, your lap video will also be recorded to the internal memory.

2. In order for the Endurace/Taxi-Mode to work properly, your USB sticks must meet all of the following minimum specifications:

– USB 3.0
– High quality USB stick from a renowned brand
– The USB-Stick should be formatted in ExFAT.

Please be advised that failure to meet any of the above requirements can result in errors while using the Endurance/Taxi-Mode.
